Stellar ingredients, and greatly loved by my fussy dogs. I’m also happy to hear that the percentage of meat and byproducts have gone from 95% to to 85%, as it appears to mean more nutrition from fruits and vegetables. I have no problem with the additives I see. Only issue for me is price, but it’s well worth it. Hoping it will help some with my one dog’s skin condition.

This in combo with the kibble (LID Turkey for small breeds) has made a tremendous difference in my rescue schnauzer's life. Especially the addition of raw--she has stopped itching, stools are perfect, energy is up, and her hair is soft and shiny. I'm very sad you are not going to keep making this product.

My rescue Mini Schnauzer was surrendered with HGE. After coming off a low fat kibble, the rescue suggested this as it would help with her sensitive stomach. I've been feeding it for 3 months. Simply amazing results: She transitioned beautifully, her hair is softer, she has more energy and stools are perfect. I also have her on the Instinct Limited Ingredient Diet Turkey for Small Breeds. That too she loves. I'm going to rotate with soon with a different Raw Bites/Kibble combo in the same range. Extremely happy with this line from Instinct.

Raw food, and more specifically Natures Variety raw food, has TREMENDOUSLY helped my little pup with his Allergies and digestive issues! What he has can't be fixed but he's been off all medications for a full year and is doing great! We couldn't be more thankful!
I would love to see some more novel proteins like elk, bison or kangaroo! Even pork (besides in the rabbit) would be great! Right now he can only have the rabbit and beef but, hey, we'll take it and be thankful :) Having a company I trust and knowing that he's getting a "complete and balanced" diet is such a blessing!

I started a slow transition to higher grade kibble about 2 months ago. I then started at transition to Instinct Raw Bites about a month ago. I have noticed a big change in my three Cavaliers. They basically lost that dull coat and their breath is much better. They seem to digest it better than kibble. I have done a lot of research on dog food over the last few months and I am not impressed with the way the dog food industry operates. However, I am impressed with the quality of your food and the fact Nature's Variety uses HPP when making their Raw Bites. The company is one of the few outstanding pet food manufacturers out there.

One day after work I brought home a bag of Instinct to try out with Evee. She was already on a higher quality dry food, but wanted to try frozen raw and see how she’d do. The ingredients seemed spectacular and I figured the raw bites would make for an easy transition for her. She LOVED her first taste of it. She took to it better than I thought she would! After rotating through other frozen raw brands, I know that Instinct holds a special place for Evee’s ever hungry heart! She dances on her back legs every time I get the bag out and when I place her bowl down for her. She just loves it! Her possible food allergy symptoms of constant itching and skin redness have become far less noticeable, or have disappeared. She is very clearly thriving! Plus her coat is super soft, and doesn’t smell like corn chips! Woo!

My dogs love this food. They beg for breakfast from the minute they get up in the mornings. Our oldest dog wouldn't eat half the time in the mornings but now it's a fight to get him to leave us alone long enough to get it ready. Chewy ships this perfectly so it's still frozen when you receive it.

The food is hearty and my 1 year old frenchie devours it! The quality is great. Just watch out for the copper if your dog has liver issues. I put him on the weight loss amount as my vet wants him to lose two lbs and I can already see a difference. I haven’t noticed a change in behavior yet as I’ve been told that switching to raw helps with energy levels. However, he has only been on it for two weeks. He was allergic to the crap puppy food I had him on before, so the changes in his coat, skin and itching has begun to change for the better! His poop schedule has changed dramatically! I also know that is very common. I would recommend this brand so far. It is pricey but it is also convenient. It’s pretty manageable and only involves slightly more effort than scooping kibble.

Cost Effective and Quality
While I don't like chemically synthesized vitamins, it's still a quality raw that is now far more affordable.

Long story short, my dog's health was waning and two vets AND an ER visit yielded diagnoses with a terminal prognosis. She had lost 25% of her weight, struggled to walk, stumbled around, and had no interest in anything, including two of her three favorite activities: cuddling & spinning. She was still eating well, but having BM's every. single. time. that I took her out, which was odd.

Between the two standard vets and the ER vet, they insisted it wasn't the food (which she'd been on a while without issue).

And then she stopped eating. My vet and I were making end-of-life plans for Periwinkle, but I wanted to wait until her birthday before I said goodbye (just a few weeks later). In the meantime, I bought an 8oz bag of these bites to see how she'd react since she hadn't eaten any of her regular food OR any treats or kibble samples.

Needless to say, she gained most of her weight back within two weeks and has since then been more energetic and more healthy than I've seen her in literally YEARS. She's 12 1/2 years old and acts like she did when she was about 7!

Not only have her life-threatening concerns vanished, but even a couple of minor issues she was having before her health bottomed-out have also resolved themselves. I don't know how much of this can be attributed to the food switch, but I can tell you right now that if I hadn't put her on this food, she wouldn't have made it.

I switched over from a different type of raw food when my dog started having bloody runny stools. He is thriving on the instinct raw lamb. He doesn't care for the beef or chicken oddly, but always clears his bowl. His coat is shiny and soft. He doesnt have allergies any more and being a jack russell, the food fuels his crazed adventures! Two thumbs up.
